Re: ps vita wont turn on

Flashing Orange means that there isn't enough power for the vita to turn on, when it goes solid orange, you will then be able to turn it on.

If you're charging via the Wall charger have you got the USB lead with the SYMBOL facing front?

Well tbf you do a lot of Vita bashing on these here forums...perhaps it read your comments thought it wouldn't be missed and died.

 

On a serious note

Try the other suggestions above.

Re: ps vita wont turn on

(caps lock on so people will notice) WHEN THE ORANGE LIGHT FLASHES, AS ALREADY POSTED, MEANS THAT YOUR PSVITA HAS LITERALLY NO CHARGE LEFT, NORMALLY THE FLASHING LIGHT LASTS 10-20 MINUTES, THEN IT WILL GO BACK TO NORMAL ORANGE WITH NO FLASHES, THIS MEANS YOU CAN TURN ON YOUR PSVITA AS IT HAS SUFFICIENT POWER TO RUN AGAIN AND CHARGE NORMALLY.

 

hope this helps! Smiley Very Happy

Re: ps vita wont turn on

If the Vita has no charge, you must charge it from mains. USB won't cut it.

 

If you're powering it from the mains and it still won't charge, see if you've got a friend you can lend you their charger so you can find out if it's the charger at fault.

 

If the Vita's at fault, well, it's under warranty.
